JOHANNES (JOHOUN) LUHUNG BEHNER (b. 17**)
According to Pam it appears there were more than just the two brothers who emmigrated in 1833, "checked the IGI at familysearch.org but it lists the children of Johann (not Johoun--that sounds like a phonetic spelling) Behner and his wife, Sara:
1. Johannes <Behner> - International Genealogical Index

2. Johannes <Behner> - International Genealogical Index

3. Matthaeus <Behner> - International Genealogical Index

4. Gottlieb Friedrich <Behner> - International Genealogical Index

5. Marie Barbara <Behner> - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 19 DEC 1809 Evangelisch, Graefenhausen, Schwarzwaldkreis, Wuerttemberg
6. Sara <Behner> - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 30 MAY 1823 Evangelisch, Graefenhausen, Schwarzwaldkreis, Wuerttemberg
7. Anna Katharina <Behner> - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 02 FEB 1826 Evangelisch, Graefenhausen, Schwarzwaldkreis, Wuerttemberg
8. Christina Barbara <Behner> - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Female Christening: 05 NOV 1820 Evangelisch, Graefenhausen, Schwarzwaldkreis, Wuerttemberg

Sara's maiden name apparently was Koenig and Johann was a Johannes which meant he was known by the name Johannes (or in English, John). You'll find quite often in German records that the first name given was a baptismal name and the second name was the name by which the person was known. There are families in which you'll find a bunch of boys named Johann Adam, Johann Peter, Johann Conrad, etc. They are known by Adam, Peter, Conrad, etc., rather than Johann. If they are to be called "John" then generally their name is Johannes. This is not a set rule but occurs quite often. All the above were extracted from the actual Graefenhausen records rather than submitted entries by other researchers so the data should be pretty accurate. It will give you some names and dates to key in on when you order the film from the FHC."

According to Margaret Cheney, MargCheney@aol.com,
"Johoun and Sarah had other children as well. Sarah Behner and children applied in 1833 to come to America as listed in the Wuerttemberg Index. I did not find the ship they came on. If they did indeed come that early, then I would imagine that if they came in to New
York, they either came via Canal Boat to Lake Erie and then by Wagon Train to Liverpool - or by Wagon Train from New York. Liverpool, or the Valley City area of Medina County was very heavy in salt mining at that time. There were also stone quarries. The land had a gentle roll to it and I've read and heard that it was very much like the land left behind in Germany."
